Vaginal dryness is a problem that affects many women, especially after menopause. The condition often has uncomfortable and painful side-effects, so it’s not surprising that women with vaginal dryness often seek to ease their discomfort by increasing vaginal lubrication.
What causes vaginal dryness?
Vaginal dryness is known medically as atrophic vaginitis is often caused by a drop in estrogen levels. Estrogen is a hormone that plays a vital role in vaginal health because it keeps the vaginal tissue thick, moist, and flexible. However, when estrogen levels decline, the vaginal tissue becomes thin, dry, and less elastic. Birth control pills can also contribute to vaginal dryness because they disrupt hormone levels.
Symptoms that accompany vaginal dryness
Vaginal dryness is often accompanied by symptoms such as painful intercourse, burning, and itching.
How can I increase vaginal lubrication?
In order to increase vaginal lubrication, it’s important to first identify the vaginal constituents. This can be done with the help of the Vaginal Fluid Analysis (VFA) test. The VFA test is an advanced diagnostic tool that is available at Fowler GYN International (FGI).
The results of the VFA test will help to determine the most effective treatment. The experts in vaginal care at FGI, typically recommend vaginal rejuvenate therapy to restore estrogen levels.
Vaginal rejuvenate therapy is customized for each patient and includes prescribed medications along with the skincare products, namely, the FeminaRx Pure SkinCare Collection.
The FeminaRx Pure SkinCare Collection contains a range of hypocontactant skincare products that help to moisten the vaginal area. The products are specially formulated for women with sensitive external genital tissues (learn more).
